Cybersecurity Futures 2025: Insights and Findings

Produced through a collaboration between the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC), CNA’s Institute for Public Research (CNA), and the World Economic Forum’s Global Centre for Cybersecurity (C4C), this report includes a set of four scenarios depicting possible futures that could result from the rise of artificial intelligence, ubiquitous sensors, quantum computing, divergent internet regulations, and other trends. The project team convened a series of workshops in seven international cities to engage experts and decision-makers in dialogue about the challenges and opportunities the scenarios depict. The report provides an overview of key findings, as well as the full scenarios themselves.

Secure Machine Learning

We will study how to harden machine learning classifiers against adversarial attack. We will explore general mechanisms for making deep-learning classifiers more robust against attack, with a special focus on security for autonomous vehicles. Current schemes fail badly in the presence of an attacker who is trying to fool or…
